The small-bodied classic makes a triumphant return.

Washburn's R319SWKK Parlor acoustic guitar packs serious big time punch in a little parlor-sized 6-string. But don't let its diminutive size fool you. The natural acoustic tones and dynamic range of this Washburn guitar will astound.

The Washburn Parlor is a small-bodied guitar that packs in a surprising amount of volume and punch for its size. The popularity of these guitars peaked between the late 19th century until the 1950s, however, they are making a strong resurgence. Because of the size and incredible projection, many blues and folk musicians have used smaller-bodied guitars like the Washburn R319SWKK Parlor Guitar with much success over the years and permanently stapled them as a true-blue American folk guitar.

The secret to its amazing tone and projection lies in its wood. The solid spruce top and trembesi body create balanced tone with lots of dynamic range, not to mention with a beautiful appearance as well. The dovetail neck joint adds strength to the guitar, and helps the overall tone. The Washburn R319SWKK guitar's mahogany neck and the ebony bridge and fretboard add sturdiness to the instrument and clarity to the overall sound. The 24-3/4" scale, 48mm nut width, 16" radius and V neck shape provides comfort when accessing the acoustic guitar's 18 frets.

Dressed in an aged satin finish, and featuring die-cast tuners and chrome hardware, the Washburn Parlor guitar looks like something right out of a museum, with a timeless tone that will never grow old. Order yours today and hear the incredible sound of a parlor. Includes case.

      Comments about Washburn R319SWKK Parlor Acoustic Guitar:

      I purchased this guitar as a Level 1 used. This is the last in a series of parlor guitars that I will buy. If you are looking for full, rich, warm tone then don't buy this guitar. You will be disappointed. If you are looking for the 1920's and 30's vintage parlor sound that was popular among blues pioneers then you will be will pleased. This guitar doesn't sound "folky". Neither does it sound "country". It has a unique sound that I and all of my friends have played this guitar have never heard before.

      I am not an accomplished musician. I strum some first position chords and fingerpick a little. I play harmonica in a blues duo. What I plan to use this guitar for is a little solo busking. The tone will immediately draw attention. It is perfectly aged to start conversations with passers by. I am truly enjoying my little "oddity". If you are looking for a classic blues sound, you probably will, too.

        Comments about Washburn R319SWKK Parlor Acoustic Guitar:

        I just received a Washburn R319SWKK parlor guitar and it's love at first sight. Knowing what I was buying stopped any disappointment about a fake vintage guitar- the appointments are spectacular- from the beautiful binding to the bookmatched wood on the back this is more than I hoped for. I recently bought a Luna Trinity parlor and it was so soaked with plastic finish it didn't vibrate- it looked like it could be used for a boat oar and the wood would never get wet. The Washburn feels alive vibrationally and the V neck is very comfortable. This will be my "grab it" guitar for the forseeable future. Also, I got an excellent price from the guys at the phones. Thanks!

        cool vibe, sweet sound

        By DMcD

        Comments about Washburn R319SWKK Parlor Acoustic Guitar:

        The R314 first caught my eye on youtube. I really liked the vintage look of the fretboard inlays. I ordered it and the R319 together to compare the two. I preferred the ebony fretboard of the R319, but the overall look of the R314. After playing them both however, there is no comparison in the sound and playability. Both guitars have deep-v very wide necks, but the R319 is much more comfortable and playable, and the sound or tone is like night and day. The R319 has an open, full sound that is amazing considering the guitar's body size. It actually has the sound of a vintage well played instrument. The solid wood body with open grain really sings. I'm even loving the strange deep-v and wide neck. Somehow it just fits my hand and the thick V gives me leverage to put needed pressure on bar chords and bends. I'm actually preferring the chunkiness of this neck to the thinner, "faster" necks of my other accoustics. This is the guitar I reach for now. I highly recommend it.
